      Paul Chambers Movie Chambers Calling all monsters! Universal trots most of them out for this sequel to "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man." And, the results were slightly better than the 1943 effort. Boris Karloff plays a mad scientist bent on revenge. Rated: C+ Oct 26, 2014 Full Review Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy 71 incomprehensible minutes of the very worst Universal had to offer. Rated: 3/10 Oct 30, 2009 Full Review Cole Smithey ColeSmithey.com Rated: 4/5 Dec 2, 2007 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jun 11, 2005 Full Review Michael W.

      Audience Member Watchable, but not very thrilling. Dracula makes a quick exit, and too much time spent on Igor's annoying subplot of unrequited love for a gypsy girl. Lon Chaney Jr looks bored, and Frankenstein's monster also makes a way too brief appearance. On the plus side, filmmakers stage some cool looking rainstorms, foggy forest sets that are set on fire, with the flames really close to the actors, and an electrical Frankenstein reanimation. I wanted to see the Univeral monsers in a battle royale, but movie doesn't really give that. Too bad. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/14/24 Full Review Ted B Easily the worst of the Universal monster collection films. All the usual suspects appear, but the only original character is the 'Wolfman,' played by Lon Chaney Jr. Boris Karloff was featured in the movie but played a mad scientist rather than the Frankenstein monster. John Carradine as Dracula and Glenn Strange as the Frankenstein monster bring experience from their previous horror roles. But they just weren't up to the standards of the original actors in those roles. I sort of grew up with these movies, so I can watch them even when the quality is not totally there. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/12/24 Full Review C Riley H The movie is not very good. But Karloff is the screen's centerpiece and makes this very much worth a watch. Imagine bringing all of the monsters together for a murder-filled romp. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/12/24 Full Review Mike W Poor in all aspects! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/03/23 Full Review Valerii Ege D It is an awful movie but valuable because it is the Avengers of Horror Movies. Dracula, Frankenstein, Werewolf, and Hunchback in the same movie. The first movie to bring them all in one place. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 09/18/23 Full Review Steve D A good film can be made from this premise. This isn't it. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/29/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
